Mark M. Judd, often referred to as Marcus, was born February 9, 1841 in Athens, Waterloo, Ohio to Mark M.Judd and Brittina Crooks. Mark is their 2nd son and will be the 5th of 9 children.
The 1850 census shows all 9 of Mark and Brittina Judd's children are with them plus they care for Mark's father, Heman Judd who is age 79 and a widower. They are living in Athens, Waterloo, Ohio and engaged in farming. On the same 1850 census it is noted the Judd family live in the vicinity of the Hewitts and Batys.
Like many families of their time, the lure of more and better land lead the Judd's to go west to Southern Missouri between 1855 and 1860. When the family moves they leave Heman Judd in the care of the Athens County Infirmary. Two of Mark's sisters are married and will stay in Ohio to raise their families.
In the 1860 census, Mark M. Judd, Jr. age 19 and brothers, Thomas age 17 and Obadiah age 12 are listed as farm laborers on their father's farm. Older brother, Heman Judd, and wife, Minerva Hewitt Judd, with 6 month old son, Pardon, live and work on an adjoining farm in Cessin, Howell, MO.
When the Civil War breaks out, Missouri is the home of many northern and southern natives and the divided loyalties of the state were evidenced by 100,000 men enlisting in the Federal army and 50,000 joining the rebel forces. This pitted neighbor against neighbor. Mark M. Judd, Jr. and his brothers were among those who supported the Union cause.
Mark joined the Army and was assigned to the 1st Missouri Light Artillery, company L. He remained a private during his year of service, March 1864 through July 1865. The facts of Mark's service are attested to from the Muster rolls, the 1890 Veterans Schedules and his Civil War Pension.
After the war, Mark marries Susan (Mary) Williams. Susan is shown in the 1860 Census living between Lynn and Moore townships in Oregon County, sometimes with her grandparents, Littleton and Susan Tankersly and sometimes with her mother, Amanda Tankersly-Williams-Hurst.
In the 1870 census Mark and Susan have 2 children, Melissa and Obediah and before 1880 they will have one more son, George. Mark is farming in the Oak Grove area of Oregon Co, MO. Susan either dies or divorces Mark (there is no definitive evidence for either occurrence). Mark marries Elizabeth "Bets" Jolliff on January 13, 1878 in Oregon County, Missouri.
By the time of the 1880 Census, Elizabeth is raising Mark's 3 children, Melissa, Obediah and George. Mark and "Bets" remain together and have additional children, Nancy A. Judd, Matilda E. Judd and Heman Herbert Judd.
Mark dies on October 27, 1903 of the injuries sustained from being dragged by a wagon with his foot caught in the wheel spokes. He is buried in the Jolliff Cemetery, Rover Oregon, Co, MO.
